Installation of i686 SDK on a x86_64 machine?

Wolfgang Denk <wd@...>


in previous releases it ha always been possible to install a SDK
configured for a i686 machine on both x86 and x86_64 systems.

Since commit c04f5435 "populate_sdk_base.bbclass: use SDK_ARCH instead
of SDKMACHINE" this does not work any more; instead, installation will
abort with "Error: Installation machine not supported!"

++ uname -m
++ sed -e 's/i[3-6]86/ix86/' -e 's/x86[-_]64/x86_64/'
+ INST_ARCH=x86_64
++ echo i686
++ sed -e 's/i[5-6]86/ix86/'
+ SDK_ARCH=ix86
+ '[' x86_64 '!=' ix86 ']'
+ echo 'Error: Installation machine not supported!'
Error: Installation machine not supported!
+ exit -1

Is this intended behaviour (and if so, why?) or rather a bug that
should be reported and fixed?

Thanks in advance.

Best regards,

Wolfgang Denk
